2019 Fantasy Outlook
Anderson once was thought to have the talent to be an early-round pick, but suffered three major injuries while at Oklahoma, including a torn ACL in September that forced him to miss all but two games in 2018. He demonstrated his considerable talent in 2017, rushing for 1,161 yards and 13 touchdowns on 188 carries, while scoring five more touchdowns through the air. Because of his injuries, Anderson fell to the supplemental round of the sixth round. It's not certain that he'll be ready for Week 1, and even if he is ready he'll be behind Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard, and maybe even Trayveon Williams. He's a big wildcard for the Bengals that could pay off with a full recovery, but that payoff probably won't occur in 2019. Read Past Outlooks

Mixed bag in NFL debut
RBCincinnati Bengals
August 22, 2019
Anderson (knee) made his NFL debut in Thursday's 25-23 preseason loss to the Giants, gaining seven yards on eight carries and catching all four of his targets for 51 yards.
ANALYSIS
Anderson turned in a forgettable performance on the ground in his return from a torn ACL, but the rookie was effective as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. The 2019 sixth-rounder out of Oklahoma was once a highly-touted prospect before his injury troubles, so Cincinnati will likely hang onto Anderson and allow him to get back to full strength in a depth role behind workhorse Joe Mixon and pass-catcher Giovani Bernard. Such an arrangement wouldn't offer much short-term fantasy value, though.
